Remember

  • Industrial tribunal proceedings being taken against organisations are not uncommon, despite the introduction of fees. The awards can still be substantial in 2014-15 (latest available), the median unfair dismissal award was £6955. Average awards in discrimination cases are much higher in addition to time taken up, stress and reputational damage to your company.
  • Tribunal awards can now be in excess of £78,000. Awards in discrimination or whistleblowing cases are unlimited. Your employees tend to know more about your legal rights than you do.
  • Redundancy and dismissal are governed by a legal process. If you don’t follow the correct procedure it can be costly and time consuming.
  • The Equality Act increases discrimination claims, they can be minimized by having suitable policies.
  • There have been significant changes to ‘family friendly’ policies in 2015 introducing revised parental leave regulations, flexible working provisions and changes in the handling of long term absence.
  • There have been major changes to the tribunal system and employment legislation in 2015 with more to come in 2016 as human resources management increases.
